MERRIMACK - A petition organized by Merrimack High School students led administrators to allow a classmate with autism to participate in this weekend's graduation.
"People I've been with I've known basically my entire life, so it definitely will mean something to me," said student Tim Morin.
It will be another two years before Morin gets his high school diploma, but he planned to walk with his classmates this weekend. That was until an issue arose a few weeks ago.
"There was a misunderstanding along the way during the high school career. We thought one thing was going to happen and the school thought something else was going to happen," said Russell Morin, Tim's dad.
That's when his classmates pitched in and started a petition to let him walk. And the petition paid off because the school has reached a compromise that will let Morin be a part of graduation this weekend.
